Publisher's Summary

A DEVIL’S BARGAIN

Easily the shyest Wallflower, Evangeline Jenner stands to become the wealthiest, once her inheritance comes due. Because she must first escape the clutches of her unscrupulous relatives, Evie has approached the rake Viscount St. Vincent with a most outrageous proposition: marriage!

Sebastian’s reputation is so dangerous that 30 seconds alone with him will ruin any maiden’s good name. Still, this bewitching chit appeared, unchaperoned, on his doorstep to offer her hand. Certainly an aristocrat with a fine eye for beauty could do far worse.

But Evie’s proposal comes with a condition: no lovemaking after their wedding night. She will never become just another of the dashing libertine’s callously discarded broken hearts —

which means Sebastian will simply have to work harder at his seductions…or perhaps surrender his own heart for the very first time in the name of true love.

    "Shy Ivy shines her light on St. Vincent"
    Any additional comments?

    Shy, little Ivy makes a deal with the devilishly handsome Lord St. Vincent. They are both desperate, the former to get out of her abusing family while the latter for money. They agree to marry and combine their misfortunes for their mutual benefit. Through their journey they come to know and care for each other. Ivy stands her ground and impresses St. Vincent with her wit and resolve. He ends up completing a full U-turn by the end, which made the story unrealistic. He was too callous for my taste in a few instances, which is why this doesn't get five stars. Overall a very enjoyable read.

    "3.5 stars, great story, okay narration..."

    I have never read/listened to a Kleypas book before and I must say I will definitely try more! I am a lover of Judith McNaught and Ms.Klypas was reminicent of her and did not disappoint me with her writing style. She brought the characters to life and made a compelling story. I would have liked to have heard a bit more of how it came to be that Sebastian fell in love with Evie( i was confused as to why) but as a whole the story went well. I was not a huge fan of Rosalyn Landor... she made the men sound like silly caricatures instead of compelling heroes for us to fall in love with. I much better prefer narrators like Jenny Sterling, Jennifer Wiltsie or Susan Duerden... I would recommend you try it out if you are one who can get past Ms. Landor's stodginess! I give the plot 4 stars and the narration 2-3 stars. And give the overall rating a 4 so one wont pass up a good story because of a so-so review! Happy Listening!

    "Great story"

    I like this story a great deal. But I truly can't stand the American accent of Lilly and Daisy. I had to stop the last book bc of it. The narrator is great, but I can't stand her American accents. I don't actually like the sisters at all. They're abrasive to the point of anoyance.

    But Evie and St Vincent have a nice story.

    Story
    "The book was good..."
    If you could sum up Devil in Winter in three words, what would they be?

    Sweet, endearing, funny...


    What other book might you compare Devil in Winter to and why?

    None.


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I've listened to Ms. Landor before from a previous Lisa Kleypas audible book. She has a tendency to whine and draw words out a bit too much.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a good book. I thought it would be a little more to it, because the of all the rave reviews. But never this less it was good all the same.

    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    Story
    "Good enough but nothing special"

    Story - Devil in Winter is the story of a young couple who don't know each other but then meet and plan a marriage of convenience which occurs in two days. Sebastian (a ladies' man) and Evie (a wallflower) develop a mutual sexual attraction quickly, but the rest of the relationship...well, you need to hear the book. The setting is London in the 1800's. The story is good, but I never really fell in love with the characters or cared a lot about their story. There are 3-4 sex scenes which are pretty hot, and there is a decent story line running along with the romance aspect.

    Narrator - While the reader did a good job, I didn't like the way she performed Sebastian. He was portrayed as 32 years old and very sexy, but I thought he sounded like a stuffy old codger. NOT a romantic voice.

    Overall - If you like historical romance, you will probably like this story, but it's definitely not a "must hear."

    Story
    "Waste of a credit"

    I love books and this book I do not love. The story sounded promising but the more I heard, the more disappointed I became. I've read stories when the heroine turns to Jello with just a brush of a kiss, well this heroine became a caricature of herself, and the hero is ridiculous. All posturing and nonsense words were spoken with the stuffiest attitude that I wondered if the narrator was trying to insert some semblance of a story. I felt that the author lost her way after chapter 3. I held on 3/4's of the way through. Couldn't handle anymore. This is the first book I turned off before finishing.
